'DROS' Is A Dark Fantasy Platformer Coming To Nintendo Switch In July - Trailer

by Rainier on June 25, 2024 @ 7:00 a.m. PDT

DROS is a dark-fantasy puzzle platformer where you swap between boots-on-the-ground Captain and goop-on-the-ground Little Dros.

Join Captain, a bounty hunter who finds himself in a rather dire situation, and Little Dros, an alchemical slime creature who runs into the Captain just when he most needs help, as they join forces to scale and destroy the Alchemist’s Tower, known as the Machine.

DROS draws plot inspiration from 1980s fantasy films, while the unique art style combines a mixture of detailed diorama-like locations, charming 3D chibi-style character sprites, and beautifully hand-drawn portraits for each of the zany characters you’ll meet as you climb to the top of the Machine.

Utilize the complimentary skillsets of Captain and Little Dros as you make your way through the Alchemist’s Tower. Captain will lean on his experience as a warrior while Little Dros draws on her magical abilities to help solve puzzles and overcome obstacles. Switch seamlessly between the two protagonists to complete tasks, fight or sneak past enemies, traverse platforms, and find hidden rooms and treasures on your quest to take down the evil Alchemist and his Machine.

Along the way to the top, Captain and Little Dros will meet many unique and sometimes quirky characters, such as the friendly alchemist Enki and several other dros who will either assist with the mission or do their best to halt the heroes’ progress.

During their journey up the Machine, the two accomplices will learn many interesting facts about the strange world and discover many dark secrets of the tower, as well as its creator, the Alchemist.

In this world full of challenging, mind-bending steampunk puzzles, Captain and Little Dros will have to learn to work together despite the differences that divide them. Only through cooperation and teamwork will they manage to overcome all odds and successfully climb to the top of the Machine to confront the evil Alchemist.

Key Features:

  • Handcrafted visuals. Every little corner of the Tower has been designed with great detail.
  • Unique soundtrack. We worked with electronic pioneer Arovane to make a soundtrack that weaves through the world.
  • Explore 40 levels each with their own puzzle mechanics, enemies, hidden rooms and platforming.
  • Body Swap between Captain, a human bounty hunter and Little Dros, a small gooey creature.
  • Play as two very different characters with their own strengths and weaknesses.
  • Amass Prima and gain new abilities.
  • Odd and often charming characters to meet and talk with.
  • Narrative with humor and a bunch of heart.
  • Collect diary entries to unlock story and endings.
  • New Challenges become available after you finish the game.
  • Speedrun to find special secrets.

Currently available for PC (Steam), DROS is coming to Nintendo Switch on July 12, 2024.
